A row of flats

Information for residents who want to swap homes or mutually exchange their home.

If you have a secure or assured tenancy with us, you can swap or mutually exchange your home with another Peabody resident, a tenant of another housing association, or a council tenant.*

You cannot exchange with somebody in private rented accommodation. 

You’ll need written confirmation from us before you arrange to move, and your exchange partner needs written confirmation from their landlord too.
